Let the good times roll again


Over the last 10 weeks we have been serving economically active South Africans to find out how they are coping with the COVID-19 lock down.

So far around 10,000 people have told us about their experiences and provided us with an incredibly useful Journal of the lockdown through its various stages.

Now that we've arrived at Level 3, it's time to change the direction away from how people are coping, towards where they think things are going and make predictions about how their lives will be different in future. A more forward-looking approach.

How has COVID-19 changed your life? How do you feel about flying right now? Has COVID-19 changed your attitude towards sport? How would you socialize in future? Will your shopping habits change? And many more questions.

By completing the survey, you will be forced to think about your changes in lifestyle and the impact that these changes could have on your happiness. We will gather these insights and compile them into a report which we will send out to all respondents in two weeks’ time so you can see just how similar or different you are to other people like you.  

We want to hear what you have to say. Please take the survey and give up 10 minutes of your time.
The SACOVID-19 Survey is a free weekly survey that measures the journeys of large samples of South Africans on their paths back to normality:

  • The Survey is a public domain, weekly survey, tracking how economically active South Africans are responding to lockdown and how it is affecting their lives, liberties, and livelihoods.
  • The survey measures their perceptions about the things that are happening as well as their emotional and behavioural responses to them.
  • The survey is designed as a free tool for decision-makers to keep up to date with South African consumers and be able to respond and behave in relevant ways.
  • Currently in its eleventh week with around 1 400 unique respondents per week.
  • Results are published each week.
  • There are no fees involved and the survey data belongs to all users.
